Can polishing effect the value of your car?

Polishing will greatly affect the value of your car. Much of a car's value is its cosmetic appearance. A shiny car is more desirable than a dull, scratched car. It also signals that the car has been well cared for and well maintained over its lifetime. It will sell faster and command a higher price, which is why car dealers pay to have cars detailed and polished before putting them on sale.
